"Flushable" Bathroom Wipes Clogging Sewer Systems
Popular bathroom wipes, pre-moistened towelettes that are often advertised as flushable, along with other items frequently flushed down the toilet, are being blamed for creating clogs and backups in the nation’s sewer systems.  These wipes and other items should be disposed of in the trash instead of flushing them down the toilet.  Please watch the video Will it Flush?
